Many patients are surprised to learn that bypass surgery includes two surgical procedures. This video features the second procedure, Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting, for removing a vessel for the bypass graft.

EVH Procedure

OPCAB Surgery:
This procedure is the most common "beating heart" or "off-pump coronary artery bypass" (OPCAB) surgery. It involves multi-vessel coronary artery bypass grafting of two to five vessels. A full sternotomy is used but the patient remains off the heart lung machine while the heart remains beating. Not all patients may be candidates for this procedure. Please see
"Patient Selection Video" for more details. (Caution: These clips are from live surgery. Do not download if you are uncomfortable viewing operating room video):
